雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe a thing you did to learn another language 描述你学习另一门语言所做的一件事情/语言学习
首先，这道题目有两组关键词需要同学们注意。第一个词就是a thing，也就是说你所做的某件事情。另外一个则是，another language，也就是一门外语（不可说母语，否则算作偏题）。此外，题目没有说明英语这门语言不可以说。但是，为了防止大家在考场上遇到某个变种（例如，突然加个尾巴:other than English），大家还是说第二外语比较好。比如，日语、德语、法语、西班牙语以及阿拉伯语都可以。老烤鸭建议同学先看着题目给自己一分钟思考时间并打草稿，然后进行演练一番，最后参加老烤鸭给的原创参考答案进行学习。

You should say

What you did
How it helped you learn the language
And how you felt about it
I’d like to share an experience I had when I was starting to learn French in college about two years ago.
You know, French wasn’t a course in our school until I entered college. I guess it was probably because there was an increasing need for students to learn that. For this reason, our school administration decided to open this course as an elective. But, there was only one French teacher available in our school who had to teach four different classes. The entire French learning time during that academic year was actually not that enough.
So, I had to seek other methods to polish my French language skills. And, one crazy thing I did was to find an international student from France on our campus as a language partner. It took me about a week to find a guy who was willing to do so. We normally have a meet-up biweekly as both of us were quite busy at school. When we got together, this article is from Laokaoya website, we usually grabbed some food at the nearby cafe and spent a whole afternoon chatting. He taught me whatever he could about things in French, and I helped him improve his Chinese. Even when the covid happened, we didn’t stop. We just moved our conversation online.
Well, I think the biggest benefit I got from that experience was that I am now way more confident and fluent in striking up a French conversation than in the past.
I’m grateful that I got this opportunity to learn French. You know, not everyone can have that chance to find a partner like this to practice a foreign language.
